White paper: efficient energy supply systems for cranes in steel plantsA comparison between plastic energy chains and festoons
The creation of an operationally reliable yet rational energy supply system is a key factor in not only being able to make full use of the potential for cost reduction, but also in finding suitable technological solutions for each application. Users can generally choose between two types of solution: festoons or energy chains. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages. A comparison of these should help when choosing the right solution for an application.
